Battles' My Machines, featuring synth-pop pioneer Gary Numan, is
available as a 12'' colored vinyl single August 16th via Warp Records. The track from the band's critically acclaimed sophomore record Gloss Drop (available now on Warp Records)has been hailed by NME as ''propelled on stern, piston drums, pointillistic guitar notes scattering like frightened crickets.'' Numan notes that ''working with Battles was an easy choice for me. They have a unique approach to making music and a clear idea of what they want. They are inventive, adventurous, unpredictable and I'm proud to be involved.'' The single also includes non-album track ''A.M. Gestalt'' as the B-side.
